24 hours to think about it, and there was a lot involved. i think absent the fbi investigation which we are told by law enforcement officials are unlikely to lead to any criminal charges. it is an issue that has to be investigated because there's schur communications involved and there are classification rules. absent that investigation i'm not sure whether he could have soldiered through -- a pun i probably should not make -- and not have to resign. perhaps the president would not have accepted the resignation. dianne feinstein said today that she wished the president had not accepted the resignation. she very strongly believed that he was a key and essential piece of the national security community, and of this administration. i'm not sure whether the personal transgression although there's a code of honor and he felt strongly that he had frankly, screwed up, and that he had to pay the consequences, and after 24 hours, and clearly consulting his colleagues, other people in the national security community, don't know who else, the president agreed and accepted it on the phone in a c
affair. also, we have learned from law enforcement officials that the fbi is now investigating, and this is an ongoing investigation into paula broadwell. she is someone who's had close access to general petraeus, she was his biographer and wrote a book on general petraeus called "all in." she has spent substantial time with him the fbi investigation is seeing whether he had improper access to general petraeus' e-mails may have accidentally or deliberately had accuracy to classified information. and paula broadwell has been close to david petraeus which many people could say it's an indication of the timing of this. >> david, you're excellent at covering all the spying agencies. what's going on? >> well, i think richard mentioned the fbi investigation of paula broadwell. paula broadwell is general petraeus' biographer, and somebody who has been close to him. in literary circles. to speak a moment about the cia, general petraeus when he came to the cia about 15 months ago appointed as his deputy the then acting director michael morale who is a career agency analyst, michael more

." their relationship was uncovered by the fbi, during an investigation unrelated to this matter. miss broadwell was interviewed on this very program in march. >> i love david petraeus. how well did you get to know him? >> pretty l. i spent 3 years, that started as my dissertation and became a book. i was imbedded into the headquarters and followed him around and gathered strategic information. >> >> pretty amazing. >> the time is garnering a lot of attention. we are only a few short days removed from the presidential election and we are days away from explosive closed-door hearings, related to the benghazi coverup. petraeus was among the group of high-level government officials slated to appear before the house and the senate intelligence committees. but fox news has confirmed, petraeus will no longer be in attendance next week. what impact will this have on the inquiry into the benghazi terror attack? joining me with the answer to that question and more is someone at the forefront of this investigation. house oversight committee member, jasieve chavits. let's start with the jaw-dropping news a
enforcement sources and law enforcement officials that the fbi is now investigating, and this is an ongoing investigation, into paula broadwell. she is someone who has had close access to general petraeus. she was his biographer and wrote a book on general petraeus called "all in." she's spent extensive time with him in afghanistan, has made numerous television appearances talking about general petraeus. says she's gone running with him. the fbi investigation is seeing whether she had improper access to the general -- to general petraeus' e-mails and may have had access to his -- may have accidentally or deliberately had access to classified information, and so we know this investigation is taking place and that it's identified paula broadwell, someone who has been close to david petraeus, which many people are saying could be an indication of the timing of all of this. >> okay. david ignatius, you're excellent at covering all this spy agencies. what's going on? >> well, i think richard mentioned the fbi investigation of paula broadwell. paula broadwell is general petraeus' biographer and s
that the general came to the fbi's attention during an investigation. what can you tell us? >> yeah, we're hearing that too. i want to stress that this is very early in the story. so a lot of information is hard to nail down at this point. but we're being told that yes, this is not necessarily a case of the general, the former general stepping up doing the right thing and admitting to an affair but being flushed out. being forced to admit it becausof a fbi investigation into e-mail access of the director's e-mail. >> suarez: e-mail access by the woman in question, paula broadwell, the author of "all in" >> right, exactly, presumably by this author who it written his biography, very glowing account of the general. and spent extensive time with the general in war zones. >> suarez: so these kinds of stories, in another place in the government, in another position in government, would an official be able to ride this out? is the cea different from serving in other places in government? >> well, you know, even in this case you have a few voices out there who think petraeus could have written this out.
you. >> hey, craig. >> what do we know at this point about the fbi investigation? >> well, not all that much. but what we do know is that the investigation began into e-mails that paula broadwell was sending to another woman. so it started away from petraeus, and then led to petraeus because of the nature of his exchanges with paula broadwell. don't know whether that fbi investigation is going to produce a prosecution or anything further. but that's how it appears to have started. it doesn't appear that this has anything to do with other extraneous issues that people have talked about, benghazi or any big geopolitical thing. it seems to be extremely personal. >> what has been the reaction from the white house? and what are you hearing from people on the hill? >> well, i think everybody is disappointed. you know, dianne feinstein, veteran democrat from california just reelected herself the other night, a veteran of the intelligence committee said she wished that president obama had not accepted petraeus' resignation, that he didn't need to leave office for an indiscretion of that ki
before the house intelligence committee. and it really begs the question of what did the fbi know and when did they know it? how long did they sit on that information? i recall that general petraeus briefed the senate about what happened in benghazi. did he have this looming over his head? what is the realtiming here, liz? that's the real question that i think going forward is so imperative that we get to the bottom of. >> now, as for more on that timing, thursday is the closed door senate hearings on benghazi. petraeus was set to testify. needless to say now he is not. top director acting head of the cia. many are saying he still has to testify here, including ambassador bolted ton through the our network said this is -- there is no way around it that he has to testify. >> you would think he would. >> if they ask him to, even though he is an ordinary citizen now, he would still be required to. >> goes back to that thing about, you just can't have affairs. you know because of the blackmail issue. >> i disagree. you can have an affair. you can't put them on email, all right, people
diplomatic facility has been under investigation by the f.b.i. it is part of a broader investigation by the accountability review board set up at the president's direction by the secretary of state. no one is more interested in getting to the bottom of what happened than the president is. no one is more interested in bringing to justice those who took the lives of four americans than the president and he is very interested in having the results of those investigations provided to him and the american public. >> none of that is going to talk about the? >> the president has been forth right about when he found out about it that he directed actions be taken immediately to provide support for our embassy facilities not just in benghazi but in tripoli and around the world and every action he's taken was driven by -- >> there was a 5:00 meeting but what about after that? >> the president was made aware of developments throughout the evening and days ensuing so i'm not sure what you're question is. >> there were all \[indiscernible] - >> when you talk about military we've been answering que
